Folding homes is a distributed computing project focusing on fighting COVID-19 and other biomedical problems handled by a group of researchers. In this state of emergency, they need all the processing power they can get.
How can we help?
You only have to download their software and that will make use of your computing power when the PC is idle. Then the researchers can use that processing power to crunch lots of data. They can use the information gathered to figure out the best path to a Corona Virus treatment.
This process saves a lot of money for the research labs as they don’t need to pay for expensive supercomputer processing powers.
